I am a white male in my 50's residing in the mid-west, U.S.A.
I am polyamorous, heterosexual, have three long-term female partners, and children at home.
I am an active member of the local BDSM community in my area. I have affiliations with LINKS (Founding member), TIES, MSDB (Founding Member), Beats_Me(Now Defunct;Founding Member), BDSM_Minnesota Yahoo group(Owner;Founding Member), Leather Journey, Knights of Leather (Friend) and I started the MN Newbie Munch.
Special areas of interest and experience include:
- Human Sexuality "The sexuality of human beings comprises a broad range of behavior and processes, including the physiological, psychological, social, cultural, political, and spiritual or religious aspects of sex and human sexual behavior. Philosophy, particularly ethics and the study of morality, as well as theology, also address the subject."
- BDSM Sexuality singly or with other consenting adults in the pursuit of personal growth, or enjoyment, often using pre-established rules.
- Polyamory Multiple loving, responsible, honest long-term relationships. Non-monogamy.
- NCSF - NCSF is primarily focused on the rights of consenting adults in the SM-leather-fetish, swing, and polyamory communities, who often face discrimination because of their sexual expression.
I am a moderate, and discouraged by both ends of the political spectrum. Others might describe me as socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
I have developed my own personal life philosophy over the years, and came to the understanding that this philosophy is essentially a variation of Buddhist thought. Particularly Zen Buddhism, and is also Existentialist in nature, and shares many commonalities with Secular Humanism.
Live each day as though your hair were on fire. --Unknown
"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives."" -- Albert Schweitzer
"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain. If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain." --Emily Dickinson
"Religion is to do right. It is to love, it is to serve, it is to think, it is to be humble." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity."

|To-do list for WikiProject Sexology and sexuality:|
*Discuss current revisions to the Sex Template as well as the possibility of a Sexology Template and/or a more general Human Sexuality Template. Pursue actions relevant to these and similar discussions. Decide collectively whether we want the current Sex Template and/or other Sex-related Templates to 'officially' represent Sexuality topics on Wikipedia, and if not, what things we do want in that capacity instead. *Bot report: Cleanup listing for all articles tagged by this project — updated every few months *Bot report: Unreferenced BLPs for this WikiProject — Biographies of Liv
